Downtown Yoga Shala (DYS) 200+hr Yoga Teacher Intensive Program led by E-RYT 500 and Authorized LEVEL 2 KPJY Ashtanga Teacher Adarsh Williams and Heleen Williams, is a weekend-intensive program designed to equip students with a strong and sound knowledge and experience base, from which they can practice, teach and live their yoga off the mat and in their lives.
Comprehensive in its depth, breadth and substance, Adarsh and Heleen teach from many decades of dedicated personal practice, from a method that has its roots from a traditional source and lineage, the very foundation of all the "styles" of modern yoga we see today. Our approach has its roots in traditional Ashtanga Yoga, and we present the “method of Yoga” rather than a particular Yoga “style.” We will explore the philosophy and methods of classical Ashtanga Yoga as well as contemporary modalities of Yoga, science and wellness. You will:
• Learn to teach unique yoga sequences including Traditional Ashtanga, Contemporary Vinyasa and Yoga Wellness
• Integrate comprehensive study of yoga technique, theory and philosophy
• Gain intensive practice experience
• Experience professional and personal growth
• Hold a certification that meets and exceeds requirements to register with Yoga Alliance as RYT – 200
Upon successful completion of this program graduates will be eligible to register as teachers with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level.

YOGA ASANA & VINYASA
PRIMARY & INTERMEDIATE SERIES The asana study program includes postures of the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga. There is an overview of forward + backward bending, twists + side bends and inversions, including arm balances. In addition, healthy adaptations and modifications, including wellness sequencing based on current physical therapy protocols are covered. Students learn alignment in postures based on applied anatomy practices including self adjustment and learning to “see” students’ bodies. The language of modern yoga alignment including loops, rotations, pose and counter pose are taught and with this knowledge, the student knows how to prevent their students from asana vulnerabilities and keep them practice yoga safely.
WHY DO OUR TEACHER INTENSIVE?
SMALL GROUP SETTING
A Yoga Teacher Intensive is mostly for your own growth. Yoga can be a tool for self discovery/development and helps to expand your view of the world. It can transform your life into a happier, healthier and more whole one. The best Yoga teachers are students first. Gaining more knowledge of Yoga through our Yoga Teacher Intensive will ground you in your own practice and your understanding of it. It will bring confidence in sharing it with others. Besides all the reasons mentioned before, we guarantee SMALL GROUP instruction with caring, personal support for your growth and learning process. Most Teacher Intensives are held in very large groups, ours does not exceed 20 students. In our experience it creates a deeper way of learning and gaining knowledge that sticks.
